Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

  • Sweet update (last post) sweet small pony available

    Banana is a 12 year old super fuzzy small pony gelding. I'm not sure how to describe his color...you'll have to look at the photos! (We just say he is banana colored ) This little guy has more mane and forelock than you know what to do with and is fat fat fat (no grain for him!)

    He is AWESOME on the ground. Easy to handle-all the kids love him. The camp kids loved playing with him this year! Total in your pocket type-happy to follow you around the barn all day long. His favorite thing is giving kisses-he would be happy to lick you like a puppy all day long.

    Banana can be ridden walk/trot/canter but needs to be in a program in order to stay quiet. He had a hind suspensory so if he is ridden, he should do flat only. Not for a dead beginner (unless they just wanted to be led around) or as a once a week kind of pony.

    I think he would be most happy as a backyard buddy, with or without other horses. (Actually, he would be MOST happy in your kid's bedroom, but a backyard would do). Loves kids and would love to be pet, braided, messed around with and loved on all day long. He is longing for kids of his own!

    I took these today-don't mind the trace clip!

    Someone needs him under their tree this year

      Interested in your pony. Would love to use him as a lead line pony for my nephew. Where are you located? I am in SC.

        AppyJumpr08- Thanks, yes he IS so cute! He's not the most photogenic pony (he doesn't look quite so "Eeeyore" in person) but he is the goofiest little peanut you have every seen. The whole time I was at the barn yesterday, he had his nose stuck through the bars begging for a treat.

        As I was just telling someone, you can not look at this little dude and not smile I showed a picture to my very non-horsey SO, and he decided Banana is a "surfer dude pony"!

        I may have forgot to mention a crucial detail there. He is in Wellesley, Massachusetts. He would love to arrive under someone leadliner's tree!

          I think the proper name for his color is amber champagne. I have a walker gelding that color. They have the different colored, beutiful eyes that are dead giveaways of champagne genes.
          To ride a horse is to borrow freedom.

            Anyone have an idea what shipping would run to SC? Would love to work something out if I can get some shipping assistance in getting this little dude into a good leadline home! Lovngustil@aol.com

              Canopach, I'd PM EquineArtworks. She just had Dumplin shipped form GA to NY, so it would be comparable I bet.

                Canopach, I'm looking for quotes for Maara, they're running right around $800 to just south of Raleigh. So far I haven't found anyone coming this way till Jan, but I'm still looking. I'll let you know what I find out, maybe they could come together!

                  Canopach01 I used Kyle with Pine Valley Acres. He gave me an excellent price for shipping both the mini and the pup. He had truck problems in TX which led to some delays but my guys both arrived in tip-top shape, happy, non-stressed and clean as a whistle.

                  His website is www.pinevalleyacres.com and his email is kyle@pinevalleyacres.com , if you get in touch with him tell him colleen sent you and that Dumplin' and Tito are doing great!

                    The buyer of our weanling WB colt used him. He was very considerate of the colt and even provided him with a box stall. I was very surprised when I heard how reasonable his rates were....$400 from NC to AL on his way to TX

                        Thanks for the color help, guys. Champagne is certainly more dignified-sounding than "banana colored"

                        Banana went home today with a wonderful family to do leadline with their 3 year old son. Thanks for everyone's interest and help!

                          Thanks all

                          Just wanted to let everyone know that I just got a christmas card this morning with an adorable photo of our Banana pony and his new little boy. It is their "Christmas picture" and he is on Banana bareback in front of his decorated stall, complete with stocking and bows, and Banana has Christmas bow and tinsel around his neck. The pony looks pleased as punch!!

                          Wanted to send a big thank you to everyone out there who had interest in and helped us find a home for this lovely little guy, and our other ponies as well. Can't thank this community enough! You guys are the best Great christmas present indeed-another COTH success story!
